Seller Insight Number 1 St Thomas is a large bungalow that occupies a superb location on the edge of the attractive village of Eltisley. “My husband and I purchased the property just over thirteen years ago,” says Helen, “and in terms of what it was that attracted us to it, in short it ticked every box.” “We had been searching specifically for a large bungalow and this one really stood out from the others that we viewed mainly because of the superb layout. The main living areas are all on one side of the property and the bedrooms are on the other, so there’s a really good degree of separation, and we also loved the fact that each of the rooms is really generously proportioned; there’s a tremendous feeling of both light and space throughout.” “The bungalow was built in 1995 by the previous owners, so it was relatively new when we bought it and in really good condition. However the décor wasn’t quite to our taste, so initially we simply redecorated throughout and then over the years we’ve done more work, including modernised the kitchen and the bathrooms, just to enhance it further and to keep it nicely up to date. It’s now looking really lovely throughout and it’s got such a welcoming feel; I think we’ll be hard pressed to find another property quite so lovely.” “The main living room is very big and has French doors so we can extend the space right out into the garden,” continues Helen. “The garden itself again is a really good size and incredibly easy to maintain. At the moment we have a nice little patio area and then the rest is laid to lawn and edged by a high wall and mature shrubs and trees, so it enjoys a good degree of privacy. The space is definitely something of a blank canvass, but a keen gardener could come in and completely transform it.” “The kitchen is the real hub of the home and the room that everyone seems to naturally gravitate to,” says Helen, “but I also love the dining room. It’s a lovely size and a great space to entertaining in.” “I’d say that the location offers a little bit of everything,” says Helen. “Eltisley is a lovely little village with a good community feel; we’re surrounded by mile upon mile of the most glorious countryside, so it’s a walker’s paradise, and we’re only around a ten-minute drive from St Neots or under half an hour from Cambridge, so everything we might want or need is within easy reach.” “As well as parking for three cars on the driveway we also have a double garage,” says Helen. “It’s integral and leads straight into the utility room, which is a godsend when it’s pouring with rain and I have to bring the shopping in.” “I think it will be the sheer sense of space and the fabulous layout of this house that I’ll miss most when we leave,” says Helen. “It’s such an easy house to live in and it’s always had a very welcoming feel. I’m well aware that it’s going to be difficult to find another property quite like it.”* * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
